Daily Life: On Top of the World

22 Feb

Today ROCKS! The house is clean, the laundry is done (not folded and put away but i’ll do that later), dinner is in the crockpot, the kitchen is spotless, the dishwasher has run, and there is not a single miscellaneous toy on the floor. What an awesome feeling it is to be sitting here on the couch looking at a gorgeous place that I barely touched today (which is probably why it’s so clean). After my mom and I ran some errands we stopped at Olive Garden for lunch and I saved enough for leftovers. Then we did some more errands and went to the craft store!! I know, I know, it’s almost impossible for me to not go to the craft store while I am out. It’s just so much fun!! I bought six new colors of yarn to crochet scarfs and instead of paying what would normally cost 50 bucks, I paid 25. Yeah that’s right! Half off baby!!

I also took some pictures so you could see what I’ve been up to:

The pink scarf turned out wider and shorter than I thought but I still love the color and how soft it is!

This one I am in the middle of working on. It’s a skinny black scarf that I am contemplating adding yellow and the Steelers sign on 😛

The new toys I bought for S to play with when she comes over, Play-doh, Crazy 8‘s, and  Toy Story Puzzle

The French Dip Sandwich Recipe at the beginning

Halfway through being cooked!

E playing before we went to Nana’s

E slobbering down the best meal I have ever made! Chicken Alfredo!! It was the most amazing recipe ever, that I came up with on my own! 🙂 So proud of me and that cute little face.

I’d have to say that the most uplifting thing for me this week has been the craft book that I’ve been reading. It’s making me excited about crafting again, it’s giving me ideas, and making me feel like I can do so much with my little budget. It also helps that now that I am working my spending money is going to be increasing which will completely be able to fund all of my crafts upfront and if I don’t sell anything right away it won’t matter. Heck if I don’t sell anything it won’t matter at all! I finally feel like I’m not wasting money anymore, I’m finally feeling like I am investing in my future 😀

Things are getting better and better and I don’t want this feeling to ever go away. I’m on top of the world!

Love Always,

Daily Life: French Dipping It

22 Feb

Last night was AMAZING. It was exactly what I needed, when B got home I took a quick nap, woke up to him cooking dinner, finished the laundry (hoorayy!!), and crocheted while watching The Bachelor. I love crocheting when I am watching a movie or TV. I fly right through it without even knowing! So my latest project is s close to be done 😛

Then at 1:25 a.m. my cute little love bug decided that she was done sleeping and it was time to wake up and play!! So I gave her another bottle, hushed her back to sleep, and an hour later jumped in bed and passed out instantly! This morning I am still laying in bed while I am typing this! Although I am not really feeling like I missed a lot of sleep, I just feel really lazy. E hasn’t made a sound so I am assuming she’s making up for that lovely hour.

Today is run errands day! Aka accomplish something day! E gets to go over to Nana’s house and spend the day with her and Dodo!! She’ll be smiling ear to ear when I drop her off and when I pick her up. There is no doubt in my mind that she LOVES Nana’s house.

That will give me and my mom most of the day to run our errands and spend some quality time before I start watching the girls and become MIA. I’m excited about spending the day with her. It’s seems like everything I am worried about or anything that seems unclear just opens up and somehow she puts sense back into my life. I’m not sure if that makes sense to anyone else but me.. but it does!

Hmmm! While I am thinking about it I should probably try a new crockpot recipe!! Sounds like a plan to me 🙂 Stay tuned for a crockpot recipe I stole from one of the blogs I follow on a daily basis – French Dip sandwiches by http://journalofamom.wordpress.com/

Hope everyone else has a great day,

Love Always,

J
